Volume 3, 2003.

This volume continues to broaden the scope of the previous Journals.  Central to this volume is a paper by Colleen Batey on the Earl’s Bu in Orphir, though we found no shortage of good papers which make a scholarly contribution to the history and culture of the Orkney Islands. 

The Journal includes papers by Colleen Batey, lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Glasgow; Paul Johnson with Northern Archaeological Associates, Barnard Castle; Evan MacGillivray (1908-1987), Orkney’s former County Librarian and who was principally responsible for the development of the Library and Museum services in Orkney; Brian Smith, Shetland Archivist; and Paul Newman, an architect with a particular interest in vernacular buildings, especially the design and construction of traditional farm buildings in Orkney.

Contents include;

- Holy Moses! Orkney Historians on Medieval Orkney.

- Before the Orkney Heritage Society.

- Excavations at the Earl's Bu, Orphir.

- Geophysical Survey at the Earl's Bu, Orphir, Orkney, 1989-91.

- Roofs of traditional Orcadian Farm Buildings.

- Recent Books and Papers.
